After bestriding Sherwood Forest, Robin Hood is set to sweep through university cloisters as part of a new MA course.
Students will study the culture surrounding Robin Hood
Nottingham University will provide the first Masters programme in the world on the legend and his band of merry men.
As part of the one-year course in Robin Hood studies, students will work with 15th century manuscripts in looking at the outlaw's place in English society.
The course will also use stories, songs and plays to probe the medieval world of the Nottingham legend.
The course, which has been announced just after the start of the BBC's Robin Hood drama series, will start in October next year.
Dr Rob Lutton, medieval history lecturer, said: "The course provides an exciting opportunity for anyone with an interest in the origins and development of England's most enduring legendary figure."
